The Breakdown of 'The Black Phone', 'The Man from Toronto', and 'Chickenhare and the Hamster of Darkness'

It is a big episode this week as we have three reviews for vastly different new releases. The big one is the latest horror picture from Blumhouse in the Ethan Hawke starring horror picture in The Black Phone. Then it is a buddy action comedy starring Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson in The Man from Toronto. We cap off the review with an animated family adventure in Chickenhare and the Hamster of Darkness. After all the reviews, we discuss what exactly is Toxic Fandom and how to avoid it.
